Penny Dreadful, a new mini- series in eight parts, will premiere in Sweden on HBO Nordic where the first two episodes of the new thriller series is available from May 19th. (The series is first broadcast by Showtime where it premieres on May 11th.)

Penny Dreadful is an intense psychological thriller series written and produced by Academy Award nominee John Logan (Hugo, Gladiator, Skyfall (2012)) and Academy Award winner Sam Mendes (American Beauty, Skyfall & Bond 24). Josh Hartnett, Eva Green (Vesper Lynd in Casino Royale), Timothy Dalton (James Bond in The Living Daylights & Licence to Kill), Rory Kinnear (Skyfall & Bond 24) and Helen McCrory (Skyfall) are some of the many prominent actors in the cast.

In Penny Dreadful, some of literature's most terrifying characters meet in Victorian London, Dr. Frankenstein and his creation Dorian Gray. Dracula and other iconic monsters also appear in the series that gives new life to classic horror.

The first two episodes of Penny Dreadful is directed by Juan Antonio Bayona who is behind films like The Orphanage and The Impossible.

This marks the second collaboration between John Logan and Sam Mendes after their work on the successful Bond film (Skyfall) and the first time they work for a television production.
